In The Flu Season, playwright Will Eno tells the story of doctors and mental patients, whose lives intermingle with one another in simultaneously poetic and chaotic ways, in order to illuminate—with the kindest and gentlest light—the most awkward parts of our imperfect selves and inspire hope (or at least admiration) for the complexity that is human nature. Directed by Robert Duffley, nomadictheatre‘s production focused on uncovering the gems of wisdom within the play’s wry and witty dialogue. All the elements—including the silhouettes, which were based on the actors—in the design were hand-drawn to echo the production’s focus on human language.
